Exercises for people who were hospitalized
People who have suffered an accident or an illness that led them to be hospitalized or in bed, always have some sequel and everyone’s wish is to be able to return to their normal and daily life that they had.
Many of these people, who were hospitalized for more than three months, being day after day on a stretcher, and once they are discharged, expect to be able to respond to their daily demands, in the same way that they did, but they realize that many times it is not possible to do so, especially if the cause of hospitalization was a serious illness.
The key is to incorporate physical exercise in your life, to counteract the Post-Hospitalization effects.
Effects of Hospitalization
A (serious) traffic accident, a heart attack, knee-ankle or joint surgery, a stroke, among others, are usually the reasons why a person must stay in the clinic or hospital, since It requires the constant monitoring of doctors, nurses, kinesiologists, nutritionists, paramedics and the support of the family.
But once the cause of hospitalization is controlled, the effects it causes are varied, starting with the patient’s dismobility, that is, spending much of the time in bed, not immobile, since the person breathes and their body continues working, its effects are the loss of muscle, bone, visceral and fat mass, changes in respiratory mechanics, especially if the person had to be connected to a mechanical ventilator, cardiovascular changes.
Regardless of whether the cause of hospitalization was due to hip surgery, since being in a lying position modifies blood circulation, because it does not go against gravity; alterations in the sleep pattern, due to constant monitoring and visits from health professionals, stress and anxiety, joint stiffness, due to lack of mobility, among others; There are many effects that hospitalization has and people are not aware of them and think that in time everything will return to normal.
On the other hand, it should be mentioned that these effects are only from being hospitalized, that is, from being lying down for a long time, connected to breathing equipment and medications, if we add the effects of an illness or injury that led to being in the clinic-hospital, its sequels must be added or added.
